Q
If you leave braids in your hair for more than three weeks will it cause breakage? —Vicky

A
Braids left in for over three weeks should not cause hair to break, but if the braids are too tight, then you may have a problem. Any hairstyle that pulls on the root may inflict more tension than the strand and hair follicle can bear. If the braids are left in too tight of a position for an extended period of time, the hair follicles can become damaged and may stop growing, possibly resulting in permanent hair loss.
